Voter ID Law Struck Down By Arkansas Supreme Court
LITTLE ROCK (KTHV) – The Arkansas Supreme Court has struck down a state law that required citizens to show a photo ID before voting, according to KTHV.
The court upheld a lower court’s ruling that labeled the law “unconstitutional” because it added an additional qualification for voting, KTHV reported.
Approved by the Republican-led legislature, the controversial law was passed by overriding a veto from Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe. It took effect on Jan. 1, according to KTHV.
